Transparency

How We Use Information
How We Use Information

SheerID determines if you are eligible for the rewards and offers by instantly connecting with over 9,000 authoritative data sources.

An authoritative data source is the owner of information, like the office of the registrar for a university or the department of defense for the military. We work with these providers to enable benefits to its members through special rewards and offers from leading brands.

We only use the data you submit to verify your eligibility and communicate with you. Your data is never shared or sold to a third party.

Opt-in Consent
Opt-in Consent

SheerID has a consent-based model, where customers opt in to provide their personal data in return for rewards and offers from a brand. This means that you decide if you want to share your personal information with a brand you trust.
